    Dear Sheila and our entire family,
    My prayers are with all of you today as Bobby will be in his final resting place. Even though I’m not able to be there my heart & spirit are. Bobby served his country proudly. I remember how handsome he looked in his Navy uniform when I was a teenager. He was my big brother that I looked up to. He loved to talk & I loved to listen. He even taught me how to drive standard shift! Over the years he overcame so many obstacles and fought the good fight. Your time has come to enjoy eternal peace in heaven, where your body is whole and free from pain. You can ride the heavens highway in cars, trucks, motorcycles, and woodwork until your hearts content! I will miss you & know that I will see you again when it’s my time.
    Love,
    Debbie
